My mom is going back to college to finish her degree and needs a new laptop. She was considering a mac, but I want her to get a PC. She's planning on doing minor video and photo editing on it, and no gaming. Her biggest caveats are that it has to look good, it has to be thin and light, and it has to last a whole day. Price isn't an issue.
The ones we're currently considering (in order of likeliness) are:
Dell XPS 15
Macbook Pro 2014
HP Elite X2
Macbook Air 2014
But we're open to other suggestions. Thanks!
